The Keating Hotel: Urban-Chic Boutique Hotel

Posted: Oct. 30th, 2007  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Boutique Hotels: With its oceanfront setting, rich Southern California history, and plethora of museums, art galleries, shopping, dining, and nightlife venues, the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego is an ideal setting for the urban boutique Keating Hotel. The hotel's Victorian-styled building is a historical landmark that dates back to 1890.

The Keating Hotel is the first hospitality venue designed by Pininfarina Extra, which is part of the world-renowned Pininfarina group, the Italy-based design firm responsible for the design of the Maserati and the Ferrari. The chic 35-room hotel opened in the fall 2006. Five room styles are offered, including a two-bedroom suite, two oversized one-bedroom variations, standard one-bedroom suites, and junior suites. Eight new premium suites will be added to the lavish complex as well.

The vibrancy of Pininfarina's sexy art-deco layout is ambiance in a bottle. It is sassy and uplifting from top to bottom. The electrifying red and white colors are everywhere throughout the interior of the hotel. The Keating has an exclusive guests-only subterranean lounge aptly called the Lounge. There also is a rooftop swimming pool with a glass bottom and a restaurant that is adjacent to the hotel. The Vault, which is the wine cellar of the Lounge, has a limited edition of Pininfarina wines from Italy's finest vineyards.

The sumptuous guestrooms feature high ceilings, exposed brick walls, and oversized windows. Luxury amenities include personalized in-room check-in, goose down feather beds and goose down duvets, luxury linens, in-room HDTV plasma-screen televisions and stereos by Bang & Olufsen, in-room espresso machines, customized sip-and-crave selection bars, high-speed WIFI, Dornbracht bath fixtures, custom bath amenities, and plush bathrobes.

The unique boutique hotel is within walking distance to Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Horton Plaza, Seaport Village and the San Diego Convention Center allowing it to boast one of the best locations of the boutique hotels in San Diego. BOND Urban Habitat is the developer of the Keating Hotel.
